Booking Classes (BA)
An additional tier bonus is awarded on top of base mileage, thus a Gold card holder flying in A class will earn 300% of the base mileage.
Codes are grouped by cabin flown, and are shown in order of decreasing cost & flexibility.
When booking online at ba.com the booking code ('selling class') can be seen by clicking the link containing the flight number when reviewing fares or on the fare confirmation page (a popup window will appear).
NOTE: As of 28 April 2015 BA announced significant changes to both the earning of Avios and Tier Points, which reversed many of the changes implemented in October 2010, and increased mileage earning in premium fare classes. These include: Silver will now only earn a 50% mileage bonus. Deep discount economy fares now earn 25-50% of miles flown. Full fare premium cabin earnings are now up to 300% of miles flown. Tiers point earning is reduced on discount fares.
